Deadly Business

El Kheyer Zidani, Algeria

This documentary reveals the hardships faced by young Berber villagers whose only form of livelihood is stone-cutting in the quarry, located in the heart of the Algerian Desert.

As a result of their work, many of them suffer from lung disease. The film will follow a dying young man, his still healthy workmate who refuses to quit his job, and the driver who voluntarily supplies the masks for the workers.
